Hot Pop Factory; 3D Printed Pez Heads

Asked by a client to create a ‘fun’ 3D printed gift, Toronto studio Hot Pop Factory promptly set about replacing the Disney princess heads on top of 32 Pez mechanical pocket dispensers and replacing them with the heads of the lucky recipients. Thanks to a Kinect motion-sensor to scan each employee and a bit of fine hacking, the finished product was created – and, at last, a worthwhile use for 3D printers was found…
